I know this has something to do with bicycle safety and advocacy. Would you be willing to explain what?

Fossil fuel dependence guarantees bad trade deficits, which impact the economy.

Stocks Bounce Back on Fed Minutes

By Robert Holmes

4/12/2005 3:12 PM EDT

Updated from 2:43 p.m. EDT

Stocks reversed course Tuesday afternoon, after the release of the Fed's FOMC minutes, which eased concerns about inflation and higher interest rates.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was recently up 56 points to 10,504, while the S&P 500 added 6 points to 1187. Both had traded close to their 2005 lows of Jan. 24. The Nasdaq was 11 points higher at 2003, after having neared its six-month low touched in late March. The 10-year Treasury note was up 12/32 in price to yield 4.38%, while the dollar was higher against the yen and euro.



Oil fell sharply by $1.36 to $52.35 in regular Nymex trading. The May crude contract finally reversed a week of declines on Monday, rallying in the afternoon to finish up 39 cents. The contract was down as much as $1 earlier Monday.

I don't worry too much about the stock market because I have all my money invested in technology.
Specifically the 'Centipede' machine at the laundry-mat.

Enjoy
